after some work related travel to Europe … an update
had to re-do some of the veneer pieces in the ribbon … too much space between them … not sure why this occurred though some of it seems due to micro size differences in original cutting.
I’d guess some is possibly due to shrinkage. But I don’t really know.

Now, to shellac…. are all shellacs the same? or are some shellac better than others for a veneered coffee table?
What should I look for in a shellac at the box stores? Or would it be better to visit Rklr in the next town over from here?
How does one apply shellac – rag or brush?
I’m also guessing that “in a cold garage” might not be the best idea …what is an ideal temperature?
